Ooops... PDD Friday (on Saturday!!) & PaperPlay Challenges

I had this post scheduled for yesterday, for my PDD Friday, but I set it at the wrong date :$

This is the little Milk Crate & Cartons that I made for my class at the GCBE which is running this weekend in Athlone.

This set is super fun to make and is basically all cardstock. I went for a Christmas Theme on this particular set and have an Autumnal set in progress :) The Santa and Hanging Stockings stamps are SeeD's  and the sentiment & Reindeer stamps are Studio G. I used copics markers to colour in my images. The handle is cut out using my nestabilities, as are the circles and scalloped circles.

( (how cute is this little Studio G Reindeer?!!)

The design paper on top of each carton is literally all the design paper you need. Mine is from The Glitter Stack (DCWV). The bottom of each carton has a little tab so they can be opened to fill them with treats/toys.. a fun gift for many occasions!!

The template for this project can be found HERE.

Please do go check out the other Pezzy DT members blogs to see what they've been up to. You can find the links on my sidebar :)

Our challenge this week on PPC was set by Julie and her choice was "Spot This". Julie LOVES spots and stripes but can't bring herself to cut into them, so this challenge may have seen tears from her, lol!!

I used MME Laundry Line on this one. I'm not sure I'll EVER tire of this paper stack - I LOVE it!! I coloured my Manga Girl with copics and shaded the background with Tattered Rose distress ink. I also used another favourite on this card - Prima Hydrangeas :) The floss, ribbon, pearls and buttons are from my stash.

I am off now to pack up and have another day of ink, paper and glue!! Have a wonderful Saturday!!
